¡Hola Robert! Yes, both expressions you are mentioning use the verb "tener" in order to express the age.

Gracias, Silvia.

But would surely be translated as "This is a century-old tradition", no?

¡Hola Robert!

Yes, your translation in English is correct. Remember that we do not always have a direct translation between languages.
